As those steamy summer days fade into warm nights you find yourself scrolling through Netflix trying to find the perfect film to fall asleep to. There are some classics that you should definitely check out if you haven’t before and if you have then you just might enjoy experiencing them again. Here are some classics sure to make you smile and mumble along to when you hear the famous one-liners they are known for.
This film which features Jennifer Grey as ‘Baby’ has her stuck at a summer camp before heading off to the Peace Corps. While she resigns herself to a boring summer full of canoeing and campfires she meets a dance instructor played by the now infamous Patrick Swayze as Johnny Castle. As he begins to teach her to dance romance blossoms and this classic will have you sighing along with this couple and the line “Nobody puts Baby in the corner” will have you nodding along as you go on this nostalgic journey.
When Harry Met Sally
Now, this is a classic that is still as relevant today as it was when it first hit the big screen back in 1989. It features Harry played by a very young Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan as Sally. The main theme throughout the film is whether or not men and women can actually be ‘just’ friends. As their friendship progresses Harry and Sally find themselves running into each other over the years with nothing much happening except a platonic friendship where they both share the differences between men and women. You will just have to watch to see what the conclusion of that age-old question is according to them.
Breakfast At Tiffany’s
If you enjoy truly classic films, then Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring a very young and beautiful Audrey Hepburn is something you must turn on. Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl swore by it and the style of Audrey’s character Holly Golightly who is simply trying to find her way in the world. Slowly a romance buds between Holly and a new writer who has moved into her building but life is not easy for either of them. As their relationship progresses and they get to know each other they both see just how hard it is to get ahead in a city not designed for the underdogs which are how they see themselves. This film is worth watching for the fashion and the superb acting of the time. It’s a treat to see New York City in the early 60s.
